You can buy the data cards on eBay and the programmers pop up now and again and doubt you'll have much trouble dinging a chart CD.

The 230 is quite an old unit and used Navionics charts on a strange and short lived garmin special data card called G Chart.

I am not certian you'll be able to get one anymore, and if you can it will most likely be 1/2 way to teh cost of a cheap but new and colour plotter (which all come WITH uk charts F.O.C.)

Sorry to bear bad news.

Yes I had not thought of eBay, but those charts will be 5+ years out of date, last time I saw a G Chart was 2005 and I recall even then we could not find anyone to update it, I think Garmin discontinued it when they went bluechart in about 2002 ???
